Welcome

Welcome to the website of St Peter’s Cathedral, Adelaide.

Twentiethteenth Sunday after Pentecost- Sunday 26 October 2014
 

Welcome : Transitions in life are never particularly easy, but there are ways of making them positive. One way is to look back and note what has been achieved, where one has come from, and what the values were that informed the previous chapter or season of life. In today’s readings, both morning and evening, we see something of this happening. Close to death, Moses is reminded of the promises made by God to his ancestors. Jesus, moving inexorably closer to his death, reminds the critical Pharisees of their own teaching about God’s Law: that the two great commandments are to love God and love neighbour. Take a moment today to re-examine the foundations of your beliefs and values. How do they measure up against God’s?

Using a lectionary is a great way to be disciplined in reading the Bible. Lectionaries for 2015 are now available to purchase in the Cathedral Shop, as is the new range of Anglicare SA Christmas cards.

Welcome to the families of Hudson and Miles as they present these little people for baptism. Welcome to all who worship in St Peter’s Cathedral today.
